The US Department of Justice just announced 13 criminal charges against four Huawei organizations and individuals, including Meng Wanzhou in a live press release.

In a press conference with the FBI, US officials announced that Huawei was implicated in a scheme to deceive sanctions on Iran.

Huawei Technologies Ltd., Huawei Devices USA Skycom Tech Ltd. and Meng Wanzhou are all named in the charges.

They were charged with conspiracy, bank fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and obstruction of justice.

Officials claimed that Huawei purposefully used a scheme to deceive the US and the international community to evade sanctions on Iran.

US officials also claimed that Huawei is implicated in stealing T-Mobile trade secrets and that the company was using corporate espionage to get an unfair advantage.

"We're gonna continue to investigate and prosecute these types of cases because ultimately it undermines the national security and economic security of our nation," said Matthew Whitaker, the Acting US Attorney General.

The US plans to file their extradition requests soon.

The Justice Department released a detailed indictment on the charges outlining the allegations.

Meng Wanzhou is currently in Vancouver free on bail waiting a judgement on her extradition to the United States.

Canadian officials have yet to comment on the US indictment and charges.
